how the united states may change this influence, address this national security deficiencies him and provide global leadership in an era when the american economy may not be the overwhelming source of power it once was. increasingly, national influence will be determined by whether the countries can contribute to solving global problems or at lease whether they are making themselves indispensable to other nations. china and other developing economies are demanding a greater say in the management of the world economy through the g20 and other mechanisms. china's global leverage has increased as it liberally positioned itself as a creditor nation with more than 20% of the world current account balance surplus. we cannot depend invasively on china investing heavily in the united states government that. some thought must be given to how we work with china and other nations to establish a more sensible global balance that depends less on demand by american consumers. the united states in the g20 also must rethink the role of the international financial institutions that provide crisis

that the government of the united states is not going to expand as a share of gross domestic product over the next ten years is, in my judgment, a denial not only of reality, but of necessity. we are now on track, i think, to have a government that consumes say 24% to 25% of gross domestic product which is a step up from the average of previous decades. i see no way of avoid ing thing and so one question that's on the table is how we can finance that in a responsible way so that the budget objective that mia mcginnis put on the table earlier of stabilizing over time the ratio of debt to our gross domestic product could be achieved in a way that's consistent with all of the other commitments that we want to maintain. my belief is that as we think it would be a mistake to think only about the total size of the revenue piece, we also have to think about its shape and composition. i think that the tax code that we have is antiquated, distorted and riddled with unfairness both horizontal and vertical. we need fundamental tax reform that asks questions about a 21st century tax system that promotes economic
